MINUTEMEN!!THE BRITISH ARE COMING!!BE ARMED!!

After the British sent troops down to Boston to abolish their rebellious behavior, the First Continental Congress prepared a militia to make sure if the British go to the extent of fighting they would have a army. Supplies for the militia, nicknamed the "Minutemen", was stored in a small town outside Boston called Concord.
When some people were talking about the storage of supplies by the militia, a British personnel heard of this and told the new appointed Massachusetts governor. The governor instructed several troops making up about 125 personnel to march their at night and seize control of the military stock. Paul Revere and others noticed this intention and rode out to Concord overnight and addressed the message that the British were coming to the Minutemen's military supply storage to seize control of the military stock.
When the British reached the destination, they noticed that the Minutemen outnumbered the British troops. The first shots were shot after 6-8 minutes the British military stood at the other side. The effect of the carnage was that both sides had an abundant number of casualties. The fighting stopped when the British army surrendered and receded back to Boston. Some fire was opened against some Minutemen in Lexington. The battles at Concord and Lexington marked the beginning of the Revolutionary War.
